burns on milbank

Rob Burns' "Extra Ecclesia Non Salus Est: Defending John Milbank’s Ecclesiastical Metanarrative" is a fascinating and helpful defense of Milbank against both postmodernist (Coles, Hyman) and anabaptist (Yoder, though Hauerwas might fit in here as well) critiques of what some might perceive as Milbank's overly "constantinian" metanarrative.

I'm not sure who the author, Robert W. Burns, is, but he appears to have written this paper as an undergraduate political science major at Wheaton College a couple of years ago. Impressive.
